Cars Of The California Mille – 2012 – Part 2

With the many car events canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic we will not see the car action we are accustomed to at this time of year. I thought it would be a good idea to reach back into the My Car Quest archives and occasionally re-post certain articles with lots of photos of interesting cars and events to help us get through.

This is the fifth of the My Car Quest Archives Series – Cars Of The California Mille (Part 2) – from April/May 2012.

Pretend it is happening now.

The California Mille is over now but the memory of those cars and that day in beautiful San Francisco are still with me.

Parking the red Ferrari very carefully. This one also had the protective stone guard material on the front.

  1. I imagine the Lancia B20GT and the Ferrari spider as my ideal garage mates from this assortment.

  2. Lovely cars, excellent pics. Many thanks for showing these once again.

    Some lovely cars , but you forgot to mention the super rare 1955 Austin Healey 100S next to the 1955 Lancia Aurelia B20GT . It was one of only a production run of 50 cars and the first production car with 4 wheel disc brakes . Although most were painted American race colours , it was only available in RHD
